AirQino

We developed a circuit board "AirQino", Arduino Shield compatible, integrated with low cost and high resolution sensors, dedicated to the monitoring of environmental parameters and air quality pollutants (Noise, Humidity, Temperature, CO, CO2, O3, NO2, CH4), road pavement quality (accelerometer) and the indices of well-being (globethermometer to calculate the index of thermal comfort) in an urban environment. The board integrates a microprocessor unit that acquires all the sensors installed and analyses fast data from accelerometer and noise sensor.
A comprehensive spatial data infrastructure has been developed. It is composed by: a central Geo Database for data storage and management; a GIS engine; a web application for viewing, querying and performing analysis. The interoperability of this system is guaranteed because all its components are based on the Open Data approach and open source services and follow the INSPIRE, OGC (Open Geospatial Consortium) directives and standards.
Through General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) technology, the sensor transmits geolocated measured data to the server connected to the applications and web server allowing to visualize real time observations on a web browser.
